How to Pay With Bitcoin Or Other Accepted Crypto?

Step 1: Go to the invoice you wish to pay by selecting invoices from the billing tab dropdown.  Then select the column of the unpaid invoice you wish to pay.

Step 2: Head to the drop-down invoice page and select Cryptocurrency.  Click on Pay Now underneath the dropdown after selection.  Once done, this will take you to the CoinPayments checkout page.

Step 3: Select the Cryptocurrency you wish from the list of accepted choices, and select Complete Checkout when ready.  Walkthrough the prompts to process the payment.

Important note: Invoices can be displayed as "unpaid" for up to 24 hours when paying with Cryptocurrency. This is not because of the blockchain itself, but CoinPayments software processing the request.  Once processed, the "unpaid" invoice will appear as active.

In order to protect customers from creating uneconomical transactions, effective tomorrow (March 9th), we are raising the BitPay minimum payment amount from $0.04 to $1.
